Ahhhhh, Christmas

I just realized it's been a while since I've written anything here.  I guess I haven't really had much to say. 

It's just a few days until Christmas but it's going to be a busy few days.  Tonight, all the kids and grandkids are coming over.  We've gotten to where we just buy for the grandkids, at least for now.  Things are probably tighter this year than they're ever been for Christmas but I tried to get things for the grandkids that either really meant something, or something that I knew they would really like and might enjoy for more than just the next few days.  Just having them all over means so much to us - we are so grateful for our family.

Tomorrow we celebrate with Ival's side of the family.  It's grown so big (we also have our kids and my mom because the Turners are just awesome) that we have it at the clubhouse here in Hidden Springs.  We usually end up with close to 50 of us but it's a lot of fun to get everyone together.

Sunday will be quiet.  Just us and mom.  It will probably be nice to have some quiet time!

I'm so incredibly grateful for my friends, my family, and another year of having my wonderful sister-in-law Pam in our lives.  I have to mention her here because she's such a blessing to everyone who knows her.  She is truly the strength and class that I wish I could be.  Thank you Pam, for reminding us every day how precious life is, and how truly minor our problems are.  While I don't see you as often as I'd like, I think of you every single day.

I hope you all have a wonderful whatever-it-is you celebrate.  Thanks for being my friends and family!

Christmas is the time to be grateful for our family and friends and a time to remind ourselves and each other ( as you have done) to be so thankful. How blessed we are to have all these special people in our lives, young and old-er. Thank you all for being YOU .
